is an empowering event for the participants who are building, and for local women who need affordable housing!
Watch this video of Julie Davenport, Habitat for Humanity MetroWest/Greater Worcester Board Member and a long-time supporter of our mission to build homes, communities and hope, and of our annual Women Build event that calls attention to the plight of single women who need safe and affordable housing. As we navigate the Coronavirus crisis, Julie has gotten creative with fundraising for Women Build. She organized a virtual trivia night and squares fundraiser—raising a total of $1,900 for Women Build!
Particularly now, when we’d normally be welcoming you to our build sites for Women Build, we wanted to share a short message from our construction manager, Paul Rebello. Some of you may have met Paul when you were last on-site, but if not, here he is virtually.
Habitat Homeowner, Kristy, shares what home means to her during the COVID-19 outbreak.
During this time of uncertainty amidst COVID-19, we want you to know that our fundraising platform is open. We are closely monitoring the situation and when it is safe to do so, will work with you to schedule a future date.
It is more important than ever that we have your fundraising support.
Local women and families who need a safe and affordable home are counting on you.
So many of the local families we help will be affected deeply by the coronavirus. A loss in wages means they will have limited funds to pay for food, which in turn impacts their own ability—and their children’s ability—to stay healthy. Many will have difficulty paying the rent or for transportation needed to go to a grocery store or to keep medical appointments.
Will you help? Sign up to fundraise and make a lasting difference in the lives of local families. You never need to leave your home to fundraise on-line to ask friends, colleagues, and family for support. It’s a great way to keep busy and motivated without leaving the house during this difficult time and help families in your community who need a stable affordable home.
